The Tenth Asian School on Computer Science is to be held in Kathmandu where image processing has been found to be one important aspects of computer applications. This particular school, thus, concentrate on computing with images.
The school receives local supports from ICIMOD and the Computer Association of Nepal.
The lectures are intended to provide a overall view of Geometric Modeling using curves and surfaces in their parametric representations. Eventhough B-spline curves and surfaces are becoming more and more popular, this presentation is based upon Bezier curves and surfaces, because the former can always be treated as composite Bezier curves and surfaces. An alternative approach based upon Ball curves and surfaces is also presented to show the conversion from one model to the other. Since conversion is useful in practical situations to make use of the merit of each model.
The producton of synthetis images from geometric models
requires a precise treatment of lighting effects that can be achieved by
simulating the underlying physical phenomena of light emission, propagation,
and reflection. The purpose of the course is to provide a comprehensive
description of the most advanced algorithms for such simulations of
radiative light transfer, namely the Radiosity method and Monte Carlo
techniques. Then, fundamental research issues such as decomposition domain
methods, parallel implementations are discussed, and
specialized applications such as vizualisation of architectural spaces,
driving simulation, computer-aided lighting design, are presented.
In this course, I introduce the field of Medical Image Analysis and Simulation. I present the medical needs required to improve diagnosis and therapy from multidimensional images. I list the basic research issues, and provide a survey of the state of the art, organized along the following categories: visualization, segmentation, registration, morphometry, motion, and simulation. I sketch the description of a few but demonstrative solutions, and illustrate each topic with recent results.
